Synopsis: Make great tasting espresso on a stovetop espresso maker. Step-by-Step instructions and manuals on how to use stove top moka express coffee makers.

How to use stove top moka express espresso makers:

1. Remove the top part of the espresso maker.

2. Remove the filter funnel insert

3. Fill the lower part of the stove top espresso maker with cold fresh water.

Do not fill past the safety valve!

4. Fill the filter funnel with coarse ground (not espresso fine or you might get a leak) espresso coffee. You can also use a medium blend to make a milder tasting coffee for breakfast.  Experiment with the degree of your grind for different taste characteristics.

5. Put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the espresso maker.

6. Screw the top part back onto the lower part firmly (don't force).

7. Place espresso maker onto stove top (boil setting). If you are using a gas range, make sure you don't burn the moka express handle which migh be made of plastic or rubber.

8. Remove espresso maker from stove immediately once the top part of the espresso maker is filled with coffee (careful, the espresso maker is hot!)

9. Enjoy the freshly brewed espresso. Thoroughly dry the unit immediately and do not air-dry.

Do you have instructions for Graziella for cappuccino steamer for milk.
I've lost mine over the years and we normally use it in the RV with my cooktop espresso maker.
Thx

The steam is shooting out of the gasket on the lower part and it's making a high pitch squeal.

What do I do?
Administrator Note:
It may be time to clean the gasket or replace it with a new one.

Not sure why it says its a 6 cup? It only makes about 2 cups. The bottom doesn't even hold 6 cups of water
Administrator Note:
Italians refer to 1 cup of Espresso at around 1 to 1.5 oz. per cup. So, a 6 cup espresso maker should yield between 6 and 9 oz. of espresso.
The imperial measurement for 1 cup on the other hand is 8oz but don't expect the 6 cup stove top espresso maker to brew 48oz. of espresso.

I have a 3-cup Bialetti stove-top espresso maker. Can I use it to just make 1 cup? I am wondering whether the fact that the coffee wouldn`t be packed in tightly would affect the taste.
Administrator Note:
It is always recommended to brew the full specified batch size for best results. Anything less will have disappointing results

It always Spiils from the bottom before it is even half filled. What should I do ?
Administrator Note:
The grind may be too fine, the gasket may be damaged, you may not be tightening hard enough, you may be adding to much coffee, remember coffee grounds will swell during Bering....

Thank you for posting these instructions. I just bought a 10 fl oz Espresso Coffee Maker and there were absolutely no instructions with it! Yay! Now I'm good to go! Thank you!

Much easier to understand than the instructions that came with the coffee maker. Now to have a drink!

How do you know when the top part is filled with coffee? I have an electric stove.
Administrator Note:
You'll have to lift the lid and check the level.
Careful, don't burn your hands, use a glove.
You can also tell by the sound it makes.

Is steam suppose to come out of the seam between the top and bottom?
Administrator Note:
No, most likely your gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced.
Chris 25/04/2015 08:07
Perfect! It's been so long since I used mine I didn't even know I'd lost the instructions! Thanks, this is very clear, and the pictures really help.
